Are you looking for a new architect? Then look no further.

Established in 2011, Spire Property Consultants is a building and property management service company that is a wholly owned trading subsidiary of the Diocese of Norwich. We provide support to a wide variety of clients including PCCs, church schools and academies, as well as managing residential properties across the Diocese.

Amongst our team are Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) approved conservation accredited Surveyor, David Lemon MRICS and DAC approved architect and member of the DAC committee Iain Walker RIBA. David is appointed to look after and conduct the Quinquennial Inspection for over 120 churches across Norfolk and Suffolk and Iain is appointed to do the same for a further 20 churches.

Spire has also undertaken many ecclesiastical projects with an emphasis on heritage and conservation, working in conjunction with skilled trades and industry experts, to ensure that buildings are restored in an appropriate and sympathetic manner. We are able to assist with proposal drawings, measured surveys of the existing building, prepare specifications and schedule of works; we will also work with you on the expression of interest, advising on the funding available, obtaining competitive tenders for the various items of work and analysis to advise on the preferred tender. Our Project Surveyor, Les Bailey, has been the lead surveyor on numerous projects across East Anglia, specialising in church schools and academies.

Spire offers a range of services, which include the refurbishment of, or extension to, existing buildings and facilities, as well as new builds on sites. Matt Ramsell, our Architectural Technician, is able to provide 3D visualisations for both ecclesial and education projects, ensuring that our clients are able to visualise
your proposal. Our aim is to provide “property services with Christian values”, therefore, our fee structure is transparent and agreed before clients commit to projects. Profits generated by Spire are directed back to the Diocese of Norwich, to support its mission and ministry. Before you commit to an appointment of consultants, we would be happy to discuss initial ideas for your project.
